We discuss the limitations of traditional ‘neoclassical’ economics and economists and the value of a political economy approach to give a broader understanding of economies and societies. Aidan outlines a new approach for fiscal and budgetary policy in Ireland – that would focus on the state borrowing and investing in key areas of housing, and in particular addressing the climate crisis. We also discuss the shift to the economic left -for investment not tax cuts – amongst the Irish people and its implications for politics.
